Where Is My Neon Sign, Universe? – Published at the Elephantjournal.com

I hate to admit it, but some days even getting dressed could wait ’til tomorrow.

Back in August, I was released from my duties as Marketing Manager for the company that I worked for. It was a huge shock to me at the time. I honestly did not see it coming that morning when the General Manager walked into my office shortly after I arrived for my day and slid a piece of paper across my desk telling me I was done.

As I look back on it now, I was actually relieved that she let me go. I had lost my passion for the position for a number of reasons, and it was obviously showing in my work. I left the office that day somewhat comfortable with not having to return, to be quite honest.

But days later, it shook me to my core that I didn’t know what I was meant to do. I didn’t feel like I belonged there at that position, and as I scoured the employment websites looking for a new job, I found that I wasn’t finding anything that screamed out to me, “Yes. This is where I belong.”

Just an average ordinary woman being herself on this crazy ride we call life. I say what I mean and mean what I say. I chose to bring along 4 crazy side kicks on this journey, my 4 kids.

My eyes are now wide open to the path ahead of me.

    It is remarkable how this post resonates with me at this very moment. I’m sitting down, updating my resume (I was let go in Dec 2015 due to company acquisition) and at 51, am looking for direction. If I’d only gone back to school in my 30’s, or made a different decision in my 20’s. I start now, moving, any direction.

    This is a great piece, thank you for sharing it.

      Sometimes the plans for us are not directly shared with us. I truly feel my “something” is right around the corner though.

    Good morning Debbie,
    I enjoyed reading your thoughts on purpose.
    As a man who certainly can procrastinate and has similar thoughts, may I
    suggest that motion leads to direction and opportunity.
    I believe our winters play a part in our indecisiveness and we need to remind
    ourselves that we are human and shouldn’t be to hard on ourselves.

      Thank you Darryl. I agree with your thoughts. Patience is my lesson in this part of my journey. This I believe with my whole heart!
